"When it appeared in 1984, the GPz900R moved the goalposts in the performance bike market. It was the first real 150mph machine and was the cutting edge of motorcycle development with four valves per cylinder, liquid cooling, rising-rate rear suspension, a 16" front wheel and anti-dive forks." – Bike Magazine. Reviewing Kawasaki's increasingly collectible 'time machine' in its November 2002 issue, Britain's best-selling motorcycle magazine rated the GPz900R a decent sports tourer (even by today's standards) and a good buy with an excellent club spares back-up.

Never off the road, this pristine GPz900R was purchased in Wales by the original owner and used to commute from there to the Isle of Wight and back for some 16 years. It was then sold to the current vendor in October 2010 and used for one year before being extensively refurbished over the winter of 2011/2012. Having benefited from regular oil and filter changes, and a new timing chain and tensioner at 26,600 miles (600 miles ago), the engine was merely checked, treated to new gaskets and repainted in satin black. At the same time the valve clearances were adjusted and the carburettors overhauled and balanced. The undamaged bodywork is original and in excellent condition, as is the paintwork. The frame and fittings have been powder-coated and the wheel rims repainted.

New parts fitted include the wheel bearings, Avon tyres, Merlin slip-on end cans, chain and sprockets, swinging arm and linkage bearings, braided steel brake hoses, brake pads, rear disc rotor, calliper and master cylinder seals, H-T leads and battery. The front fork and rear mono-shock have been overhauled and the machine comes with restoration bills totalling £1,600. Much admired wherever it goes, this beautiful future classic comes complete with Renntec luggage rack, original full tool kit, owner's manual, service book, spares and accessories catalogues, exhaust warranty, current road fund licence, MoT to June 2014, old/current Swansea V5/V5C documents and all expired MoTs and tax discs dating back to 1994.
